On this comment here, I posted a link to the famous xkcd. What is weird is, the link is broken, with a 404 error.

However if you remove the trailing / from the link it goes to the page correctly, even though the browser adds / anyway.

Also, here is a sample link which works. It is to the same page. Probable bug report.

Using my moderator superpowers I have removed the trailing slashes. There also seemed to be some invisible characters there. In any case, both links seem to work now.
